Spring is here, and while the change of seasons may inspired you to take on some cleaning and organizing projects around the house, who says you can’t have a bit of fun switching up your decor and accessories, too? “Transitioning from winter to spring is my favorite seasonal change,” says Brooke Lawer of Brooke Haven. “I don’t do a lot of seasonal decor, but think it’s important to refresh our spaces to reflect the seasons so we get the most out of the sunshine and chase away the winter doldrums!” Below are some simple ways to transition your home from winter to spring that will have you feeling excited about what’s to come. 


Say Hello To Bright Colors

It’s time to tuck away those winter neutrals and say yes to cheerful hues. You can start with your sofa. “Bring in a fresh palette of brighter colors, patterns, and prints with new pillows,” suggests Meredith McKenzie of The Selective Design.

“Say farewell to the drab feeling of winter by swapping out those heavy faux fur blankets with lightweight throws.” Fold up the pillow covers and blankets you aren’t using at the moment and stash them inside a storage ottoman or under bed bin to keep your space feeling fresh and clutter free.


Restyle Your Coffee Table

Why not use the start of a new season as an excuse to revamp your coffee table design? “Add in fun pops of color with some colorful books and candles on your coffee table,” McKenzie offers. You don’t have to buy all new items to get the look; rather, comb through your built-ins in search of books with colorful spines that speak to you.

Switch Our Your Welcome Mat

Your entryway may need a bit of a refresh following the soggy winter season. “After months of muddy boots and paws, I always switch out the welcome mat at the front door with something fresh to welcome friends,” Lawer shares.

Reset The Table

Who doesn’t love a charming seasonal tablescape? “Spring is also a great time to freshen up your tableware with patterned dishes, colored glassware, and pretty placemats,” McKenzie notes. “Bring the outside in with a beautiful fresh flower centerpiece.” Even better if you can clip some blooms from your own backyard! There are a number of routes you can go. “I usually do cut green, leafy branches all year, so adding bright blossoms to those arrangements pack a colorful punch,” Lawer says.
